Thank you Thierry, I agree that it's a very unique poster.  I remember seeing a photo you posted of your copy when you had it up on your wall, which I understand is something you rarely do as you prefer to keep your collection organized in flat files and tubes.  By the way, I hear you about renovation delays: I started renovating a building in Chelsea the week before the pandemic first hit NYC which led to a prolonged shut down of all construction work in the city followed by the now-familiar supply chain disruptions that affected pretty much every single site, so I'm quite familiar with this situation.  Good luck with your project, eventually the job will get done and you will then enjoy your new home.

Okie, I really hope you get to build that space to showcase your fantastic collection some day!  I agree that between Bruce's major auction last month, Heritage's recent Signature sale and Propstore shortly after, there was a lot of great movie posters up for grabs in a relatively short period of time.  I wonder if that accounts for some of the relative bargains in Propstore sale since that auction came last.

Right now, I donít have any posters on my walls.  Usually, I have one or two.  I like poster art, but too much of it is a little overkill for me.  Personal preference of course, I donít mean to insult anyone.  I like to mix it up with fine art.  And because Iím lazy, I donít change the one or two posters very often, so 99.9% of my posters will never see the light of day, except on my website.

1,000% in my opinion.  People just have so much money to spend on frivolities.  This is a niche market, and to have 3 big auctions back to back is a huge mistake in my opinion.  I donít understand why those guys donít communicate and try to set their respective calendars accordingly.  I know I had to make some choices.

I set my calendar a full year in advance. It WOULD make sense if the others would pick dates not so close.
We (eMoviePoster.com) hold 4,000 to 5,000 auctions every four weeks.
We have auctioned more movie paper for more money (in real sales) than any auction in the world.
We have the longest continuously running auctions of any auction, with over 1,788,513 to date from over 2,86 consignors.
See all of our current auctions in one gallery here: http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/all.html

I think it's pretty well known for two decades now that Heritage does three signature auctions at the end of March, July, and November.

If I was a guy planning my "major" auction, you would think I wouldn't plan my end of year one right after the biggest auction house just sucks $2 million plus out of the pockets of my bidders (or my August one right after theirs in July, etc), but what do I know.

I guess Propstore figured theirs was a full month after the Heritage one, but what's wrong with June? or September, or October?

I know everyone likes to think they are the 800-lb gorilla, or lion, or whatever, but the three HA Signature sales do more money than any other auction house does in their entire year combined, I for sure would try to stay clear of their dates (or at least be out in front of them).

It's not at the end of March anymore.  HA Sig was at the end of April (4/23), Emovie was a week before (4/16) and Propstore 3 weeks after HA (5/17).  So that's 3 major sales in a month.  If HA was at the end of March, Emovie at the end of Aprll and Prop at the end of May, so over a 3 month period, I think it would give all bidders a chance to refuel a little.  It makes sense to me, but like Crowzilla said, what do we know.

Yes, was always the end of March until last year when they let Grey go and they pushed back a few weeks until April (and for the first time were after Emovie instead of right before), which was continued this year. July and November remain unchanged.

I haven't checked, but I would be willing to bet a donut that Emovie's April results for 2023 and 2022 were much higher than previous years, partially because they were finally before a $2 million Signature sale instead of being after one.

Thanks ! It had a tear on the bottom corner and light fading on the black . Thought it was a good candidate for the restoration.
